Emebet Mamo, or Mimi, grew up in Ethiopia until the age of 14. She then immigrated to the USA and went to high school in D.C. When she was 20 she moved to Seattle and went to accounting school for two years. She has a 17 year-old son and a 15 year-old daughter. She began a small business in Lake City for about 10 years before getting into home care. In her spare time, she volunteers at Hope Link and follows in her mother’s footsteps by volunteering at the senior meal program at the Yesler Community Center. Now, she joins us as the head chef for our East African Elders Program at the Northgate Community Center, where she whips up delicious East African food every Tuesday.

Please welcome Mimi and say hi when you meet her next time. We are very excited to have her on our team!
